BEHIND THE SCENES: The inspiration behind the designs of The Boss Babes Collection

Dark grey stripped shirt jumpsuit

It was not that long ago the buzzword “girlboss” was coined by the brilliant Sophia Amoruso, a self-made millionaire, who has been responsible for singlehandedly inspiring and encouraging an army of women to dip their toes in business. Ever since first hearing about her in Fortune, when she sold her first company for millions of dollars, I’ve been following this woman’s footsteps religiously, so it was only natural when the time came to launch a workwear collection, it was going to be an homage to the incredible contribution and impact to women in business she has had.

Naming it The Boss Babes Collection, the line features sets of tailor-made suits and two cocktail dresses in impeccable sartorial fits, perfect for women who command the boardroom, conquer the streets with their power walk and slay the dancefloors of cocktail parties after a long day at work. Made with deadstock fabrics, this collection comes in limited quantities featuring oversized fits, bold shoulders mixed with sexy bustiers, and pants that feel more like sweats than a working uniform. It’s what we call the ultimate “work from home” kinda comfort. 

Let's dive into the designs and the women who inspired them.

The Amoruso Suit

By now, most of you have probably heard about Sophia Amoruso in one way or another. Back in the day when vintage was still in its infancy, this gal was solely responsible for putting it on the map. We have her to thank for the whole vintage craze thing. In other words, she popularized it so much so that she made it mainstream.

The blazer has a fitted silhouette with wide lapels, two front pockets, broad shoulder pads, and subtle ruffle detail instead of a pocket handkerchief with the same detailing on the sleeves finished with two side golden buttons closure.

The bustier is a gathered top with a sweetheart neckline, two straps, frontal entangled, and multiple buttons closure at the back.

The pants are high-waisted with a hidden front zipper, ruffle waist detailing with belt hooks, two frontal pleats, and side pockets. They come with a long detachable waist belt you can take off as you see fit.

The Sara Suit

Sara Blakely, the founder of Spanx is an American businesswoman, a philanthropist, and an investor on Shark Tank. A self-made billionaire, she’s an avid supporter of women's entrepreneurship through her Spanx by Sara Blakely Foundation, which she founded back in 2006 to support women through entrepreneurship, education, and the arts. A babe we approve obviously.

The blazer has an oversized fit with a single-breasted style, embellished by laces from each side so you can tighten it up to create a fitted waistline or leave them loose for a more “I snatched this from my boyfriend” type of vibe. Crafted from the softest wool blend, this modern take on a man’s blazer is fully lined with a two-button closure, side pockets, wide lapels, and sleeve button detail.

The C.J. Walker Suit

Sarah Breedlove, better known as Madam C.J.Walker was the first ever female self-made millionaire who at the time of her death was the wealthiest African-American businesswoman. She made her fortune by making and developing a line of cosmetics and hair care products for black women. She’s been an incredible businesswoman who defied the times she lived in and that’s precisely why she’s the inspiration behind this suit.

The Reese Suit

Named one of the world’s top 100 most influential women of 2021 by Forbes, Reese Witherspoon is the world’s richest actress with a career that spans across not just acting, but also producing and directing.

The Ava Suit

Ava DuVernay is a filmmaker, producer, director and the first black woman ever to be nominated by the Academy as a director in a feature category. I’ve been in awe of this woman ever since I first saw “When they See Us”. The way she masterfully told the heartbreaking story of 4 boys wrongfully accused of a henious crime was something that stayed with me for a long time. I guess that’s the power of Ava, to leave a long-lasting impression and that’s exactly the reason why this set was named after her.

The Barbara Jumpsuit

Clothes do not make the woman, but they can play a crucial part in significantly impacting your confidence. The story of Shark Tank’s fiercest woman investor Barbara Corcoran is proof of just how far investing in a truly well-made, high-quality piece of clothing can take you. We can’t help but agree with her infamous saying:

“That coat was the best investment I ever made in my business — and I would truly call it an investment, not a splurge, because it changed my attitude about myself. I thought I looked the part.

I bought it and I’m telling you — when I walked out of Bergdorf Goodman wearing that coat, I felt like the queen of New York real estate. I walked differently, I thought differently, I was like, I am somebody.”

The Barbara Jumpsuit bares her name.

Featuring a shirt-like top with asymmetrical lapels and slightly oversized straight sleeves, wide-leg pants, and elastic waist details, the jumpsuit is the ultimate statement piece. Finished with a front patch pocket, a left side seam pocket, and wide cuffs with subtle wide pleat detailing.
